    Thought I'd upload these to Boards.ie given the NRA website's tendency to develop broken links. Some good stuff here for those inclined to browse.

    Thanks for those. Just adding this:

    http://www.nra.ie/Publications/DownloadableDocumentation/Transportation/file,17069,en.pdf

    (National Route lengths, broken down by road types, as of 31/12/2009).

    Some figures:

    Total length of national primary and national secondary road network - 5,443.76km.

    National primary routes: 2,735.8km (50.26% of all national roads).

    National secondary routes: 2,707.93km (49.74% of all national roads).

    Motorways: 662.612km
    Dual-Carriageways (incl. 2+2 roads): 260.397km
    2+1 roads: 38.995km

    All of these are on national primary routes.

    As of 31.12.2009, just over 33.7% of national primary routes were motorway or dual-carriageway.

    It'll be interesting to see what the figure will be by the end of this year - should be closer to 50% - pretty impressive, especially compared to 10 years ago!

    LOL at the aerial photo of the Lucan Bypass on Page 16 . The road is lightly trafficked in the photo - I counted 24 vehicles on the mainline, only 3 of which are using lane 1.

    Also, I'd love to see a traffic count for the bus lanes on the Lucan Bypass. I very rarely see buses using it, they always use the all-purpose lanes. Was heading away from Dublin on the Lucan BP at rush hour a few weeks ago and a bus pulled out into lane 1 (all-purpose) from a standing position(!) at a bus stop. He didn't even use the empty bus lane to build up a little bit of speed. Nearly caused a pile up!

    "Ireland's national road network has grown to 5,515 km. This consists of 1187 km of motorway..."

    It's 920 km at most.

    Not too far off! There are 2,697.165km of national primary routes, with 1,224.662km of motorway (900.269km) or dual-carriageway (324.353km).

    That's just under 45.6% of the national primary network that's motorway or dual-carriageway.

    According to the NRA, dual-carriageways include HQDC, 2+2, 2+1 and 'legacy' dual-carriageways (eg: mostly older sections of N18 dual-carriageway between Limerick and Hurler's Cross).

    All information from the NRA's publication 'National Route Lengths as of 31/12/2010':

    Don't know where they got that figure from.

    The total length of all motorways, according to the NRA's own figures, at 31/12/2010 was 900km.

    http://www.nra.ie/Publications/DownloadableDocumentation/Transportation/file,17892,en.pdf (see Table 1).

    The total length of all motorways and dual-carriageways combined is 1124km, according to the same table.
